Put Away the Sword - An Elul Reflection
I grew up playing video games and I remember sliding the thick Nintendo cartridges into the 8-bit operating console that my parents bought my brother and me for Chanukah in 1987. I loved adventures most - including Super Mario Brothers, each of the Castlevania games, and The Legend of Zelda. Video games created a fantasy world that allowed me to feel powerful and heroic, even for just a fleeting moment so I could leap over pits, throw fireballs, and wield a morning star against Vampire Bats.
Selling of Chametz
Note: If possible, all chametz – food not acceptable during Pesach (Passover), or materials containing such unacceptable food – should be destroyed or given away before the holiday begins. Should this be impossible, the chametz may be stored in such a way that we are sure not to use it during the holiday and its actual ownership is transferred to a non-Jew until the holiday ends.
